Talking Straight About Money: What’s Next for GIA’s Capitalization Movement?

Tuesday, October 8, 11:10am – 12:10pm

Washington B, Third Floor

Organized by Grantmakers in the Arts.

Moderated by Janet Brown, President & CEO, Grantmakers in the Arts.

Have you attended one of GIA’s Conversations on Capitalization and Community workshops? Are you involved with a national arts service organization? If so, we would like your input on GIA’s next steps in our work helping funders and arts administrators/artistic managers understand the importance of strong balance sheets. As our economy fluctuates, and as trends in earned income change, arts groups are crippled by low or non-existent access to cash. Organizations on the brink of bankruptcy threaten the well-being of an entire community’s cultural ecosystem. How can we work with the nonprofit sector to change the institutional norms created over decades by granter and grantee practices that have hindered, rather than supported, financial health? Come and give us your ideas!
